It's a New Year ~~

Happy New Year everyone.  I hope the Holiday's were joyous to you all. I have to say that mine were just as I had hoped for. Spent with family and friends and just pure relaxation. Some stress at times, don't get me wrong, but I thoroughly enjoyed each day.

Now it's on to a new year and here January is over.  The hook-ins are still going on at Grant Street, and we've gotten some new people over the past year. Still always lots of laughs. I had my camera in my  purse this past Thursday, but not being used to taking pictures, I completely forgot about it. I was going to try and get some shots for you.  I'll work on that, and hopefully update here and there on how everyone is doing. 

I'm back to this old blog and giving it one more shot. I'm hoping it doesn't go haywire again, but if it does, then it will just be even longer between posts. What can ya do??

Thought I'd share a picture of the rug I finally finished.  I bought this pattern of Old Nutfield for my 50th Birthday.  I started it shortly after my 50th, and then I lost steam. Holidays, shows, just life, and then burn out set in. Didn't feel like bringing it back out.  Well, my 51st  just passed last October and I decided to pull it out again. I think it was sometime in late November. I think... can't quite remember (getting older lol).  I still have the whipping and label to do, and that will get done shortly. 
Not the best shot, but I couldn't be more pleased. I dyed most of the wools in the background which is a nice rich dark brown.  Size is 30"x64".

Just finished putting away all the wools that have been thrown around, and cleaned up the wool room. What a load off my mind with that done.  Will clean the work room across the hall tomorrow.  Then I think I'll sit down and hook on my current rug and just relax this weekend and enjoy the Super Bowl on Sunday.

Wishing you all a Great weekend.  Stay warm! This cold weather is Not for me~~~
